Back Cover: Microsoft Exchange Server required
The text and utilities of this book make frequent reference to Public Folders. Public Folders are a feature of Microsoft Exchange Server. To follow the instructions correctly, the reader must be using Microsoft Outlook on a Microsoft Exchange Server system.
Microsoft Press is continuing to investigate this issue and will update this report when more information is available.
Location of Practice Folders
Pages xi - xiv give a list of the folders included on the companion CD-ROM to "Building Applications with Microsoft Outlook 97." However, the list of directories on the companion CD-ROM does not appear to match the list of folders on pages xi - xiv.
The folders listed on pages xi - xiv are meant to represent the folders included in the "Building Microsoft Outlook 97 Applications" hierarchy in your Outlook environment. They are not meant to represent directories on your CD-ROM.
The following folders mentioned in pages xi - xiv have separate directories on the CD-ROM:
- Outlook Visual Basic Help
- Switch Forms
- Web Site Shortcuts (referred to in the book as "Web Sites")
The "Outlook Visual Basic Help" directory contains the Outlook Forms Help file and the Outlook Visual Basic Help file. "Switch Forms" contains the Switch Forms utility, mentioned as being part of the Miscellaneous folder. "Web Sites" contains the list of Web sites, mentioned as part of the Help and References folder.
All of the other information necessary for the book is contained in the Building Microsoft Outlook 97 Applications .PST file. Once this file is installed, the folders will appear as listed in the book in your Microsoft Outlook environment. "Building Applications with Microsoft Outlook 97" assumes that the reader is using the Microsoft Exchange Server e-mail system as well as Microsoft Outlook. However, the requirement for Microsoft Exchange is not made clear on the back cover of the book.
